Rabih Kayrouz Shares An Emotional Message With His Followers After Sustaining Injuries In The Beirut Blast

Lebanese designer Rabih Kayrouz expressed his gratitude to his followers for the love and support he received, following news of the injuries he sustained in the blast that occured last week in the Port of Beirut

Rabih detailed his slow but steady recovery from the injuries, and assured his followers that he is in great care.

The founder of the Maison also shared a particularly evocative message with his followers, reminding them to keep morale high during these difficult times. Located a short distance from the Port of Beirut, the Maison's entire atelier (and the designer's home) was severely damaged in the blast.

 Some of Beirut's most established fashion houses, promising young designers, and homegrown brands suffered tremendous damage from the explosion, which rocked the capital on Tuesday evening at 18:00. Amine Jreissati, founder of Boyfriend The Brand, also suffered injuries while many saw widespread destruction to their boutiques, offices and homes.
